Welcome to the Rotary Club of Ripon information page.
we are delighted and excited at being involved in the new e-group initiative. We hope you will find this information helpful. We also hope you will visit us in the near future – a warm welcome awaits!
We meet each Tuesday lunchtime 12.30 for 12.45 at The Ripon Spa Hotel, Park St, Ripon HG4 2BU. We enjoy a two course lunch, a speaker and we conclude at 2pm. Our speakers cover a variety of information topics from local businesses, charities and member talks.
We are a mixed club of men and women and we are very much community focused, committed to helping local individuals and charities both locally and internationally.
In the past year we have supported all age groups - from organising the Ripon Young Musicians competition and sponsoring a young person on the Rotary Youth Leadership Award, this enabled a young person to make life changing improvements. For our elderly people we arranged a Spring time drive to appreciate the beautiful floral displays in our city a trip around Fountains Abbey by floodlight , and we are regular supporters of Harrogate Homeless Centre and Ripon Foodbank.
Our biggest venture for 2017 is taking on the annual bike ride from a local charity; this sponsored bike ride will take place on Saturday 13th May 2017. Monies raised will enable us to give even more support to defined charities with the added value of raising the profile of rotary.
There are many sponsorship and payback opportunities for businesses to become actively involved in our club all of which can be mutually beneficial. Together we can make an even bigger difference. Interested? We hope so .....for more information please visit our club website www.riponrotary.org and even better come and see us ........
